This idea had been a tiny thumbnail sketch on a scrap of paper for years before I finally got re-inspired by just the right model, and the fact that our life drawing room aquired a swing for the models to pose on. To use, stamp her in black ink, then take a black marker and draw the ropes coming out the tops of her hands (scroll down for example). You can make her swing from different things : the top of your stationery, some words abover her head, a bridge, or anything at all! The design is named after a 1987 movie by Wim Wenders.
This is a fine art rubber stamp designed and made by Steven Vander Meer in Humboldt County, California. The die is deeply etched natural red vulcanized rubber, which is hand trimmed and adhered to red sponge cushion (the good kind, not the self-adhesive kind). The cushion is also trimmed by hand and then mounted to a smoothly sanded and oiled Maple block, with a clear black index printed on the top. The MEER IMAGE name is hot iron branded onto the end-grain of the block, and the SVM personal signature chop is added to the top of the block in red ink (space permitting).
Mount Type:Maple hardwood block indexed in black and finished with linseed oil.
